Prairie Points and Quilting

I really enjoyed making the prairie points for this baby quilt.  It was a simple process, and I really like trying new things with my quilts.
Somewhere on my to-do list is a new ironing board cover...
 I think the prairie points will be a real hit with any baby.  I know my kiddo would have loved them when he was just a rolly-polly baby.  Heck, he played with them every time I laid the quilt on the floor.
Pin basted, and ready to be quilted!

I put extra pins around the border, near the prairie points to keep them from moving.
When quilting near the prairie points, I pinned them back to keep them out of the way.
I chose quilting that I thought would emphasize the star layout, but when I mentioned it to my husband, he said, "What star?"  So I guess the star, and the quilting in it, aren't that obvious.  Oh well.
Finished quilting, just need to trip the edges, bind and label it!
Once I finished the quilting I put the quilt aside since I wasn't sure what to put on the label or what to use for the binding.  I still don't, but there's a small possibility we'll be seeing the recipients of this quilt in about two weeks, so that is my new deadline!
